Good Evening All.

Definitely the last one before I turn in. This is a GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD. What we need to know is , what is the nationality of the soldier? click here click here

Now I am definitely turning in, G'Night All.

Can't quite make out the language, but I'll go for either Czech or Polish.

Has the haughty look of the Austrian soldier when Austria was still a world power.

Difficult to read the writing but picked out "jeste nekdy" which translates as "ever" from the Czech language but many eastern European languages can be similar.

heymin now we have something to go on.

If john bunyan is correct about the medal, is it possibly a member of the Czech Legion who fought with the Russians?
